Welcome to the OpenWrt Project bug reporting and issue tracking system

Problems to be reported here are for the current OpenWrt and legacy LEDE Project’s targets, sources, toolchain, core packages, build procedures, distribution and infrastructure. Guidelines for submitting a good bug report can be found at the OpenWrt Project website. Problems related to LuCI or OpenWrt packages need to be reported in their repositories:

Supply the following if possible:
- Device problem occurs on
- Software versions of OpenWrt/LEDE release, packages, etc.
- Steps to reproduce


libnl_tiny stores time() value to sk→s_seq_expect and sk→s_seq_next (struct np_sock sk) in socket.c.
Struct members s_seq_expect and s_seq_next are both unsigned integer values, which I believe is to
overcome Y2038 Problem. Looking at git blame, this particular design choice has been made over 10 years ago.

Since many libraries and OS including gLibc and linux have already redefined time_t to signed 64 bit,
I think it is safe to redefine the members to uint64_t.
